Austria foils allegedly planned terror attack


Austrian authorities on Friday arrested a man who allegedly planned to conduct a terror attack in Vienna, the country’s largest newspaper Krone reported.

Austria had received a tip-off from what was referred to as a “friendly intelligence service” that the man of Albania origin was part of a group of radicalized Albanian muslims that had planned to detonate a bomb in Vienna sometime between Jan. 15 and Jan. 30, the report said.

The suspect subsequently entered Austria on Friday and was immediately put under surveillance, it said.

In the early evening, he was then overwhelmed by a team from the Cobra special forces unit in a district in Vienna and taken into custody. Enditem
